After last night’s Champions League shenanigans, more drama is likely Wednesday and the Etihad takes centre stage as Manchester City host Tottenham.
Spurs won 1-0 on their own patch in the first leg of this quarter-final and captain Hugo Lloris, who saved a Sergio Aguero penalty in that game, has promised an “ambitious” performance.
Opponents City are on for the quadruple but have won only two of the seven European ties in which they have lost the first leg. However, barring a shock defeat to Lyon, they have been great at home in Europe this season, scoring 16 goals in four games.
Before last week’s loss, they had won three in a row against Spurs but the Lilywhites are back in form, winning their last three without conceding.
You have to say though that extending that run this evening appears unlikely and this game looks all set up for City to blow them away and book their place against Ajax in the last four.
It was all too easy for Liverpool at Anfield and there is no reason to think Porto can give them any heartache tonight.
A pair of first half goals means the Reds head to the Estadio do Dragao nursing a 2-0 advantage and have positive memories of the ground, having won 5-0 in Portugal last season.
Porto will have both Pepe and Hector Herrera available after suspension and have won their last six at home in this competition.
They did look a level below though last week and while they are usually a sterner proposition in front of their own fans, expect Jurgen Klopp’s side to ease through again.
